You got memed bigly by the skill rec. For majority of the game, sans turboendgame, Living Flame is superior to Vengeful Power, because it provides a more consistent uptime on Witchblood and also acts as an absorb against poison damage (and extra 1k life also raises a threshold for hit recovery). If you take 750 poison damage per second after 75% res, this will instantly put you below Witchblood threshold and most likely can't be countered by the potion either, making LaeK the only source of recovery from it on a gimped damage. With Living Flame providing ~500 regen with mid investment, that's only 250 damage per second (1/3rd of damage), which can be countered by potion, and LaeK ensures above the threshold uptime.

Basically if you want to trivialize leveling always go for max main clearing skill + max Living Flame asap, which means you'll have both maxed at ~50 level and from that point you are free to choose where to spend points.
